    I have a secret actually... I am only wise beyond my years. [​IMG]

    --

    I am excited about my additional news for the day... Besides my earlier posts about The Central Louisiana Poultry Club and my Wing Buddy program...
    ...Full of suprises today...
    Tomorrow afternoon the vet is coming out from Lake Charles (a little under and hour from us) to do the blood tests on our flock for our NPIP Certification.
    Let me follow that with the amount of work it has taken to complete said task.[​IMG]

    I have been wanting/planning on taking a few birds up the the Haynesville show on the 17th. Well everyone knows you need a heath certificate.
    In order to get a heath certificate you need to have an NPIP number for the flock the bird originated from within the past 12 months.
    I raised my birds and have no NPIP number. I also just moved to Louisiana in Feb.[​IMG]
    I started calling every vet within an hour to get a health certificate on my birds. They ALL acated like I had lost my mind... No one wanted to help, or draw the papers. I was baffled, coming from the horse industry health papers were SIMPLE, call the vet, they come out, check out the horse and done. Apparently not so much with chickens...[​IMG]
    I had heard the blood draw was no worth the time/expenses of most vets, but didn't realize I would be met with such resistance.
    Soooooo I called the state.
    They had to call in a vet they knew would do it.
    I had to set up an appointment with him. -- He comes tomorrow.
    He will then draw blood on a percentage of the flock and let the state know when it is complete and if all is good.[​IMG]
    Then they will hopefully give me my NPIP number.
    THEN I take that to another vet, plus my birds... The vet will then smile, nod, look at the bird, write my number down, and bam! What feels like a million years later, I am done.[​IMG]

    Tomorrow I will be one step closer though...
    Just keep smiling, just keep smiling, just keep smiling.... Sometimes I sing that to the kiddos at school when I get tense, and it seems to work...trying it at home now. [​IMG]
